The SHIT are a heavy hitting four piece Garage Rock & Roll band from Berne, Switzerland. Featuring Robert Butler, Pitli Hertig, Franz Hausamman and Philipp Thoeni, veterans of the Swiss underground music scene. Formed in 2010, the group originated their sound on a combination of guitar fueled 60's garage and psychedelia and 70's punk rock. They play a modern blend of Rock & Roll rooted in a classic "3 Chord" song structure, along with a healthy dose of high energy.
The SHIT are currently promoting ''Dingleberry Fields Forever'' their debut long playing album on Subversiv Records. Produced in extreme desert heat by David Catching at his legendary Rancho De La Luna Studio in Joshua Tree, California. Combing the engineering genius of Edmund Monsef, the two have cooked up The SHIT into a 'Desert Rock & Roll' bomb ready to explode your mind. Featuring a stunning list of guest musicians from such bands as Masters Of Reality, Eagles Of Death Metal, Earthlings and former members of The Dead Brothers and Queens Of The Stone Age. This record is well rounded, beefy and full of flavor, tasty enough to satisfy the appetite of many Rock & Roll fans.

Hola Ghost got that unique mexican death‐surf, digital psychobilly, dark disco, rock... ‐ The style of the danish three piece act Hola Ghost has been categorized as all of the above plus more. And not without reason; appearing live with bandanas, bullet belts, sombrero and painted day of the death‐masks, the trio fearlessly mix genres to create their own Scandinavian mariachi rock sound. Inspired by surf music, Mexican folklore, dark disco, psychobilly, B‐western movies and what else is out there worth listening to. The three “Copenhagen gringos” present a high energy performance on albums as well as live on stage.
Formed as a duo by Peter Sandorff (ex Nekromantix and Mad Sin) with long time friend Jeppe B. Jessen , to work on the soundtrack for LA bound artist Gris Grimlys’ debut movie “Cannibal Flesh Riot”. They bought a haunted drum machine in a pawn shop in Los Angeles that the shop owner had won in a tequila‐soaked poker game in Tijuana in Mexico. While working on the soundtrack the rhythms started to seem colored by the machines Mexican origin. The Mexican influence became trademarks for the bands two studio albums and live performances in Europe, in USA and South America. And after replacing the drum machine, the new drummer Kristian Sandorff is skillfully keeping up the tradition live as well as on the band’s latest release from 2014 and on their contribution to the Rancid Tribute album "Hooligans united” to be released April 2015.

The Revox came out in 2011 after a long story...
THE REVOX was a scientific time-travel project from NASA in 1966. Three Swiss musicians trained to perform wild and aggressive garage-punk music were frozen underground with the intention of being a secret weapon in case of alien invasion. In 2011 the project was closed and they melted the ice off of these men. These warriors of primitive Rock & Roll then left the military facilities with the intention of destroying the entire world with FUZZ guitars, pounding rhythms and wild screaming. These men are dangerous and they are coming to explode your ears and brain cells with their 60's garage-punk style. Hide your daughters and wives too, as these men were trained by none other than James Bond to seduce female enemies with their incredible sexual techniques. So beware, THE REVOX are here to control your minds and your hips, nobody can stop these men!
Check out their tours!
Billy Hill: vocals, guitar, fuzz, harmonica, screams...
Major Booze: bass, organ, screams
Buzz: drums, hysteric beats, liquor

A long-standing friendship and various mutual musical projects in the past have joined together the three members of this Neo Rockabilly band who come from the South of Germany and have played together since 2001. Headed by the lead singer and lead guitarist "Spike" Gramm, who composes most of the band's original material, the trio is completed by Hagen "the Pagan" Offterdinger on stand up drums and Tom Bohn on double bass.
Apart from classic Rockabilly songs and a large amount of self-penned material, the band's repertoire also includes songs from other areas of Rock Music, such as Jimmy Hendrix' "Voodoo Chile", Motorhead's "Ace of Spades", Chris Rea´s Road to hell or "Whole Lotta Rosie" of AC/DC, which they convert into their own style, which they themselves refer to as "Kick-Ass Rockabilly". The Pinstripes' special sound results from more than 20 years of experience with different bands and from the stylistic influences associated with these musical experiences. Although the trio definitely stands in the tradition of the great bands of the Rock 'n' Roll Revival of the early 80s such as the Stray Cats or Restless, they stylistically tread their own path and manage to transfer the Rockabilly Music of the 50s into the third millennium in an impressively vivid and powerful way. With their professionalism and their outstanding musical skills combined with a wild stage performance, the Pinstripes also manage to convince the audience at their live shows.
